COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Desire coupled with curiosity can drive you to do many foolish things. Fortunately, opening a bottle of our Pandora’s Bock is not one of them. Once it is released, a wealth of flavor and complexity will spill out into the world. With a traditional bock flavor profile and a hint of hoppy goodness, there’s a reason it’s spoken about in mythical terms.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle. Pours a brown ruby body with an off white head. Some sweet malty cherry aroma light earthiness, cardboard...oh man two strikes in a row... Fizzy black cherry knock off brand soda pop. Malty, notes of sour milk, hint of roastiness. This beer is a dam mess. Pandora should have stayed in the box.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2009
12 oz bottle purchased from Greenwood Spirits Shoppe in Bowling Green. Poured a clear, deep amber color with a one finger tan head that disappeared and left chunks floating on top of the beer. The aroma was grainy, with a hint of earth and roasted malt. The flavor was solid. Toasted caramel malt base, with an earthy finish. This was a drinkable brew.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 9, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2009 On tap at the Breckenridge tasting room in Denver. Pours a reddish orange, see through body with a thin, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a small amount of lace. Aroma...is it there? A small amount of toasty caramel malts and a bit of grassy hops...but that’s really all I’m picking up. Flavor is a little better, but that really isn’t saying much. Slightly toasted caramels giving it a lightly charred taste, but leaving it very bland and sweet. I guess I’m picking up a hint of grassy hops in the finish, but really not a lot. Palate is medium bodied, malty, and smooth. Overall, the only reason I tried this was because I was at the tasting room and it was seasonal. Pretty boring and bland. Eh. (4,3,5,3,09)Re-rate: On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thick, dark tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves some light lacing. I’m still asking where the aroma is! Flavor is a little better than I remember. Malty with some toasted caramels, citrus cherry, and an even hop bitterness. Finishes dry with a lingering taste of fruity malts and toasted caramels with a touch of bitterness. Medium bodied and smooth. Overall, better tasting than I remember at the tap room, but still fairly boring. I’ll give it a few more points. (4,3,6,3,11)

Weak smell of roasted malt. Nice dark color, thin head. Malty goodness that stays with you a bit. Good brew.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2009
Bottled. Poured slightly hazy cherried-amber with a short cap of off-white head (more prolific around the edges). The aroma picked up toasted caramel and darker fruits with a dry, woodsy impression.. came across as decent but nothing special. The flavor picked up sweeter caramel and fruits with lesser brown sugar at the core.. earthy bitterness and a touch of prickly alcohol surrounded.. finished strong and bitter. Medium-bodied and slick on the palate with some tackiness on the back.. quite dry. This was decent, but I wouldn’t care for another.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Bottle from S&V, Fort Wayne. Poured hazy deep brown with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex toasted sweet malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced malty sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Seasonal on tap at the brewery in Denver. Pours a deep, dark amber color with a slight head and fine bubbles. Slight hop bitterness along with a viscus (alcohol) lace. Malty sweetness struggles against hops presence.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vivid ruby red color with a trace of a khaki head. The aroma was faint sweet, tangy and sour malts. The flavor was sweet, tangy, tart and fruity yet malty with a medium length finish. The mouthfeel was thick and smooth. Very good.
